What social networks do you get the most traffic from?

    Hi everyone, new blogger here. I'm trying to spread the word about some of my posts through social networks, but I don't know which ones are the best for sharing content. Facebook has seemed the best for me so far, with more people sharing my posts on Facebook than on any other networks. It seems like Reddit has been the least successful for me, though, considering I never get any upvotes. Which networks work the best for you?

    Depend what your visitors use the most. Some visitors usually like to share with tweets and playing hastag , some just like to share it on FB.
    No matter, facebook , twitter, linkedin, reddit, delicious and etc. If got time just go for all because those are free marketing tools for you . Facebook wrk pretty well to you so try to optimize it with more time and might some expenses, other social media can still focus but just not to palce too much time on it .

    Pinerest is a very good. It actually depends on your niche, if it is more visual stuff then pinterest is good. Google is also helpful.

    I get the most traffic from Twitter personally, but I have also seen an uptick from Google plus as well.

    Do you guys think youtube comments are an effective way of driving traffic to your website?

    I'm pretty satisfied with this statement, but Google Plus also play major roll in SMO and why you guys forget LinkedIn and Forums posting? I think these are also a key factor of SMO.

    I get the most traffic from Facebook. The primary reason is that I focus more on Facebook fan following than any other social network. Google+ and Twitter also give me traffic but they are pretty less as compared to Facebook.

    Thanks for all the responses, guys. I think I need to get more into social media, and create a Facebook fan page and promote my Twitter account a little more. Right now, I'm using StumbleUpon Paid Discovery to target some traffic, but I'm getting some pretty abysmal results when I was just directing traffic to my homepage (http://www.roadcrazed.com). To try and fix that, I created a new splash page just for StumbleUpon that has a focus on pictures and will hopefully attract some more attention along with encouraging visitors to click through. I have set up that splash page here. If this doesn't work, I'm probably just going to stop with Paid Discovery.

    I think any social network will drive you a traffic. It all depends how popular you are.

    I don't believe in using only one social network for more traffic. I use Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, stumble upon, pinterest, and also G+ for traffic..:)

    That is a good point. If you are popular, or interact a lot with your followers, the chances that it will drive traffic are higher

    Do-fallow social networking/bookmarking is useful to get more traffic from search engine.

    Unfortunately, I don't get a lot of traffic from social media no matter how hard I seem to try. I'm not very sure if it's a myth or other people just classify 'a lot' of traffic differently to me.
